5AM Saint is 5 malts, 5% ABV and 5 hops (OK, it’s six but you get the idea). That’s where order ends and chaos begins. Berries and marmalade mutate with caramel and chocolate and a dash of spice. All resting on a biscuity base. As malty as it is hoppy. As anarchic as it is structured.
5AM Saint - you need to get upearly to find anything more chaotic.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Crystal, Dark Crystal, Extra Pale, Munich, Caramalt
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Ahtanum, Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
